2.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
11.5 ounce bottle from variety "John Labatt Heritage Pack" bought from Biggs. Clear yellow color, unpleasant wet grass/musty aroma, small but lasting head with minimal lacing, light to moderate bittersweet flavor with somewhat of a hop bite. The flavor of this beer was much better than the aroma would have led me to believe, and it’s better than Labatt Blue, but I can’t help but wonder if this was a little old. I hope the beer distributor that services Biggs isn’t palming off its old stock there--I recently saw some Abita Amber there which was well past its expiration date, and it hadn’t been on the shelves that long. I applaud Biggs for bringing in a much better beer selection than most of the other chain grocery stores in the area, but someone at Biggs needs to keep a better eye on things.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pilsener glass.
The appearance was a hazy golden yellow color with a fast rising carbonation trying to fill a rapidly dieing bubbly head. There was barely any lacing.
The smell had some cooked corn.
The taste was sweet through the cooked corn.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. It comes across fairly smooth and crisp.
Overall, nothing wrong and there’s nothing really out there that makes this one stand out.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
The taste is very average. Nothing really stands out and there is no real unique characteristic to the taste. There is no apparent initial taste but there is a mildly malty after taste.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Meant to be more sophisticated and refined compared to other labatt products (is that really possible?) but to me the palate is slight but still angular enough to recreate the liquid form od a stale cigarette butt. Pretty unpleasant really.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
341ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a 2 finger white head that dissipated almost immediately. Aroma is light grains and hops. Taste is light malty sweetness with a modest hop bitterness that finishes clean. Light to medium body and pleasant carbonation. Slightly above average for a macro lager.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Medium carbonation. Slightly fruity aroma and flavor. One of the better Canadian lagers. Clean finish. I’d buy it if my faves weren’t available that night.

Bouteille de 341ml. Bičre blonde dorée pâle, un peu de mousse blanche, nez classique des bičres canadiennes, un peu de malt et de houblon mais trčs peu. En bouche la bičre est désaltérente, fraiche, ordinaire. Mince en bouche.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: Pours a clear yellow gold with light head. The nose is malty with some sweetness and husk. Nothing in the hop department. Thin flavor with a snappy biscuity tail. A little sweet in the finish like a non-alcohol lager.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Had a couple of bottles at my In-Laws, pours a clear light gold with a foamy white head, faint malt aroma and some malt bread sweetness, light malt flavor and little hop bite, a little better than the regular Labatt Blue, nice for a Summer day.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle purchased as part of a mixed 12-pack. Pours a light straw-colored translucent body with a short-lived half-inch white head. Smells sweet, slightly vegetal. Tastes vegetal, sweet, hints of bread. Very light thin mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. While initially unimpressive, this beer grows on you as you drink it. Nothing special, for sure not the best example of the style, but an easy-drinker and I wouldn’t refuse it if it were given to me.
